Taste Test: Thanksgiving Croissant @ Momofuku Milk Bar
November 5, 2013 | 12:00PM

So there are a lot of great things about November, but the biggest one (for me) as a resident of Brooklyn is the mother effing THANKSGIVING CROISSANT at Momofuku Milk Bar. They only offer these beautiful monstrosities once a year for the month of November, which is probably a good thing seeing as we would probably die of a tryptophan overdose if they were available year-round. I had my first one of the year about fifteen minutes ago, and it was SO FAB.

The croissant itself is made with celery salt, so it tastes like stuffing. (Amazing, I know.) THEN, the inside is stuffed with turkey, gravy AND cranberry sauce! The entire package! And a hefty one at that; I didn’t weigh it, but it’s a whopper. As for the taste, all the flavors are balanced really well (it IS an entire Thanksgiving meal, after all…); you’ve got saltiness from the croissant and the gravy, nice texture from the turkey, and a healthy dose of tart sweetness from the cranberry sauce. And how much will the totally-worth-it calorie bomb set you back? UNDER FIVE DOLLARS! ($4.50 to be exact! And if you throw in an extra $2.50 you can get a cookie AND a drink!) Definitely worth a trip (or thirty) to any of the Momofuku Milk Bar locations this month. GET IT, GURL.

***Momofuku Milk Bars are everywhere, but I prefer the Williamsburg location at 382 Metropolitan Avenue.
